In this post we will have a look at the difference of ACL Analytics 10 and ACL Analytics Exchange regarding Dialogs.
ACL Analytics 10 is the desktop version of ACL, which is used for manual ad-hoc data analytics. ACL Analytics Exchange is the Client-Server solution of ACL. It also uses the ACL kernel and can be used for automating analytic runs and continuous monitoring.
In both ACL products, we will find the possibility to pass user defined values to the analytics or scripts, but the priorities of both possibilities differ a lot.
The two dialogs differ in layout and functionality, as well as they differ in code syntax they have to be written in. Today we will concentrate on layout and functions of the two dialogs.
While dialogs in ACL Analytics 10 come with user-friendly dialog elements, ACL AX concentrates on functionality and scheduling.
Especially for users, which used ACL Desktop for years, it is a big change from ACL AN 10 Dialog to ACL AX parameter settings, but if they have a more detailed look on ACL AX, it comes out, that also the parameter settings do have their benefits, especially when it comes to automated analytic runs in case of continuous monitoring.
